In the ongoing Chennai rains, video of a female police officer lifting an unconscious man on her shoulders on the flooded streets of the Tamil Nadu capital are making the rounds on the internet. Reportedly, the inspector named Rajeshwari helped a man who she found lying unconscious near a cemetery. In the video now gone viral, the inspector can be seen lifting the man and carrying him to a nearby standing auto. She then carefully gets the man inside the auto and instructs the auto-driver to rush.

The video comes at a time when heavy flooding caused due to heavy rainfall has stunted the everyday life of the people in Tamil Nadu. So far at least 14 people have been reported dead due to the wrath of the nature. A red alert has already been issued in Chennai, Chengelpet, Villupura, Cuddalore, Tiruvallur, etc.


For a year, that already saw a pandemic wreak havoc in India, there is still a lot in store apparently. As the wave of COVID-19 receded in India, catastrophic events such as flooding and landslides have been reported from several regions in India.

The year started with the super storm Tauktae and progressed to super cyclone Yaas, & got increasingly intense with landslides and flooding in Madhya Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Kerala and Maharashtra.

Uttarakhand too has been witnessing several landslides and intense flooding due to incessant rains this year.

And now, as if it was on the checklist of a cruel God, Tamil Nadu has been on the receiving end of battering rainfall.
